Regardless of outcome, the timing of this "revelation" stinks to high heaven. Re: a loan in 2018, but just now coming out before the gauntlet of the schedule begins? Heisman talk for a defensive stud? Buckeyes #1 in first CFP Rankings? 8-0 on the year?

Real legit. Would love to know the source when this is wrapped up and CY hoists that national championship trophy!

They also hired the new President, Folt, specifically because she ran damage control for the outrageous cheating scandal at UNC (and got away with it).

They are certainly tailoring themselves in a particular fashion.

And I really doubt the character issues will go away now that Baby Briles is on board in Tallahassee.

For as much bullcrap as people gave Urban over every little thing, the Briles' and Baylor seem to be doing just fine.

FWIW, the FSU 247 boards seem to have a lot of confidence in landing Toafili and Edwards sometime soon.

Other than EJ Smith, who's left that would be a realistic take?

Comment 28 Jul 2019

The distance factor for Robinson is a load of bunk unless he lands in the Pac-12. Even then, Arizona would be a tragic waste and the LA schools are still 7+ hours away by car.

Comment 25 Jul 2019

I've seen the same black alternates for sale online, listed as "2019 Game Jersey" so I'd assume they'll be back for this year. Just hope we get a proper night game to wear them if so!

One interesting thing of note: much of the new season's Nike swag (t-shirts, hats, hoodies, etc.) is available in either white, scarlet, or black. Same template/design as other schools, but very monochrome. Not sure if it's a stylistic choice from Nike or not. I know Day seems to like wearing black polos/quarter-zips/hats on the sideline, so I was wondering if that had any influence on the color palette.

I'm curious to see if Kentucky can build upon their success from the 2018-2019 season. They stood pat against SEC competition and then had a good bowl win. Stoops seems to have them in a solid place and is recruiting well.

I'm also VERY curious to watch Scott Satterfield in Louisville. I've followed him for a very long time ever since he was a player/assistant/HC at Appalachian State, and I believe he has what it takes to eke out a few wins against the big dogs (he nearly won @ Georgia, @ Tennessee, and @Penn State for crying out loud!) Maybe with time and luck he'll be a pest against Dabo for us.

If things keep trending upward, there could be 5-6 solid teams throughout IN/KY/OH.

Amazing, the Cavs have better ownership and a more competent coaching search than the Los Angeles Lakers. From a pure basketball standpoint this is a great hire from Gilbert.

I'm howling at TTUN though, they lose their one palatable coach for the one sport they're decent at, and he leaves for Ohio, taking Cleveland this year over Detroit last year! 

This is huge news for Holtmann imo, he's already recruiting so well, and now there's one less competitor trying to siphon Ohio high school talent away. 2 years from now and the Basketbucks will be dominating the B1G once more!

My go-to used to be Bobby Petrino at Louisville, but he's out to pasture now.

Since the usual suspects have been named, I'd like to personally submit Mack Brown. The man phoned in every announcer role ESPN gave him, left early at times, and his analysis was trash for someone coaching for as long as he did. An old buddy of mine recently sent me a picture of him and UNC recruits holding a model of TEXAS' 2005 natty trophy; who does that??

Hated him when he was at Texas, will probably hate him in his Sunset Revival tour.

Really don't wish for Haskins to be in Washington tbh. One of the worst owners in the league, the field is a QB killer, etc. No offense to Redskins fans, they all deserve better.

I guess it's his hometown (maybe?) team, and he can make the Giants seriously regret passing on him, but I feel there are way better places for him to have landed.

Comment 16 Mar 2019

I think this is it. Remember that during the season, Herbert from Oregon was being spoken of as the consensus #1QB. Offseason rolls around, and now all the draft "experts" say Murray is the clear favorite (despite not fully performing at the combine or his pro day).

IMO there aren’t enough scouts with knowledge watching college football. Every team has gotten themselves hyped up for the 2020 and even 2021 classes, it’s unreal. You have front offices out here wondering how they can get away with tanking to land Tua next year or Lawrence in a few seasons. Hype is a terrible metric to bet your team’s future on, regardless of how talented those QBs look on a stacked college roster.

I hope Haskins falls to someone with a decent roster and veteran QB he can learn behind. Make up that missed draft bonus $ with on-field performance and longevity on a proven winner.

I hate everything about playing Wisconsin. So infuriating. Hate their flopping and whining, but so proud of the comeback our guys showed.

Need at least a win against IU in the B1G Tourney if they want to hope for a bubble bid. Next year is looking bright!
